Galco has been producing holsters for decades, dating all the way back to when it was named the Jackass Leather Company. So, the company constantly examines its holsters to see where they can be improved. This time, Galco has used its experience to bring out the Speed Master 2.0.

This versatile and concealable holster comes from Galco’s many years of design experience to continually advance holster technology. The holster’s versatility derives from its twin attachment methods — a paddle and an adjustable belt slot — that users can quickly and easily interchange. In fact, users only need a slot-head screwdriver to swap one attachment for the other. This provides carriers two methods from which to choose.

Additionally, the belt slots come with removable spacers that permit adjustment to fit belts between 1.25 inches and 1.75 inches. The paddle attachment, however, fits all belts up to 1.75 inches.

The new Speed Master features an open-top design, along with minimal cant for a fast draw. It also completely covers the trigger for safety and features a tension screw adjustment for added security. Made of premium saddle leather, users can choose between two colors — black and tan. Unfortunately, this holster is only available for semi-auto pistols at this time. However, it seems logical that Galco will introduce revolver fits sooner or later. Revolver users have long preferred these types of holsters, and would probably benefit from the advances in holster technology.
